My husband came to me and said he loves the name Pepper and I do actually really like it!

What do you think?

I'm guessing everyone's going to say nogrin

I can't see past peppa pig to think about it being a name for a baby 🙈🙈

Love it! smile

DramaAlpaca Mon 13-Jan-20 14:23:34

Hate it.

I would immediately think Peppa Pig too - sorry

Pepper is a character in American Horror Story

@Bunnylady54 I thought that too but I don't think it bothers me!

Not a fan.

I think 'Pig', 'Potts' and then 'bully from Annie'.

😂 No

What if she grows up to be a doctor? grinbut seriously if you like it then there are worse names out there

Biancadelrioisback Mon 13-Jan-20 14:31:29

What about Piper?
I couldn't look past the pig

VivaLeBeaver Mon 13-Jan-20 14:32:51

Pippa or piper not pepper

mildlymiffed Mon 13-Jan-20 14:32:51

Just to err on the conventional- how about Pippa (in its own right or as a nn for Philippa?). I think the association between Pepper and pig may lead to unwanted teasing by other kids...

I had a friend called Pepper when I was little I love it!
Yeah ok there's Peppa Pig but people still use Minnie (mouse) Elsa, Thomas (tank engine) Rory (racing car ) etc etc so what's the difference?

legalseagull Mon 13-Jan-20 14:36:34

The difference is that 'pepper' isn't a name. It's a condiment.

Good Omens That is all.

VivaLeBeaver Mon 13-Jan-20 14:44:23

I don't think pepper's real name was pepper in good omens was it? Seem to remember it was a nickname.... Or was that wensleydale? Good omens isn't the barometer of sensible names. grin

VivaLeBeaver Mon 13-Jan-20 14:45:29

Ah yes, she was officially Pippin. Named for LOTR.

Pigs and dogs sorry.

FairytaleofBykerGrove Mon 13-Jan-20 14:48:39

I knew a cat called Pepper. It’s a bit ridiculous on a human tbh. Sorry.

FairytaleofBykerGrove Mon 13-Jan-20 14:49:37

@legalseagull I completely disagree with you. Pepper is a seasoning, not a condiment.

Thesearmsofmine Mon 13-Jan-20 14:49:54

I would use it for a pet but not a child. Pippa is lovely.

Livebythecoast Mon 13-Jan-20 14:50:45

I think it's a bit of a 'marmite' name (No, that's not another name suggestion!).
You either love it or hate it. Personally, I'm the latter - I would call a dog or cat it but not a baby.
But at the end of the day, it's your choice smile

sel2223 Mon 13-Jan-20 14:50:46

pepper' isn't a name. It's a condiment

Sorry, that made me lol 🤣

I'm not a fan to be honest OP, but it's not the worst name I've ever heard. I much prefer Piper
